At Nature Trails Kayaking, we specialize in exposing kids to the wonders of the natural world by offering kayak tours for families. As parents, we find our kids in front of a screen a lot more often than we would like, which is why it's important to plan fun kid outdoor activities and find things to do for kids outside..
I'm Carrie Meyer, the owner of Nature Trails Kayaking. My husband Pete and I homeschooled our son Kai for four years, incorporating nature studies into every subject. Time outside is one of the most important aspects of how kids grow and develop.
At Nature Trails Kayaking, we hope that the time you spend with us opens up new horizons and that you take home the memory of a great experience on the water.
The children and nature movement was brought to light through the bestseller, Last Child in the Woods by Richard Louv, who links the lack of nature in children's live to the rise in obesity, ADD and depression. Kayaking in nature is a great way to connect with kids and expand their horizons past the flat screen.
Kayaking is one of the best ways to fight "Nature Deficit Disorder" by chalking up outdoor experiences and building our children's relationship with the natural world.
